Tesco Value A4 White Paper
One item I use on a daily basis in my office at home is paper. Yes, a boring product but helps me on a daily basis none the less. Generally when I print at home it is for work in draft as anything that needs to be printed properly say on engrossment or letter head paper I will do at work. Therefore, the choice of paper for me isn't a big challenge as I tend to buy the cheapest available knowing that most of it will be thrown in my recycling bin.
A few months ago whilst shopping in Tesco I was down the stationary aisle I came across the Tesco Value A4 Paper which at £2.38 for 500 sheets I thought it was definitely worth a try considering that I only really need it for drafting documents and letters. I have used a few items from the Tesco stationary range before and have found their products perfectly usable and definitely good quality so I wasn't too concerned that the paper wouldn't be up to the job.
As with any Tesco Value range the packaging is very simple. It looks like any other reem of paper in a rectangular block which is wrapped in white, red and blue wrapping which is the theme of all Tesco Value Products. The product information is of course minimal but then again what information do you need for white paper! To open you just simply turn the reem of paper open and you can easily open the packaging. The packaging is incredibly thin and will tear easily so you do need to be careful when opening it. The paper is of course pure white in colour (each page unblemished) and A4 in size.
I generally use the Tesco Value Paper in my printer and I find that as long as I don't put too much in it feeds through with no problems at all. The paper is quite thin compared to other makes but then for £2.38 for 500 sheets what do you expect?! For my purpose of using it for drafting it does the job adequately. The only problem I have found is that should I put too much of the paper in my printer because of its thinness it can get jammed easily as the printer seems to want to take more than just one sheet.
To use with a pen or pencil the paper is perfect it doesn't have a shiny finish to it so it useful for using for projects, making notes etc. My daughter happily uses it with her crayons whilst I am working and it serves a purpose. Yes, if you want it for posh engrossment paper then it won't be up to scratch but for everyday use them this is perfect. I can't find fault with it at all as it works well for me and what I need it for and of course my daughter is certainly not fussy with what she draws on!
Overall, a perfectly good Tesco Value product which does the job it is intended. If wanting something a bit more specialist then don't buy it as you'll only be disappointed. For me though it does the job I need it to and therefore I can easily award it 5 stars.
